Milan Fashion Week had ended and now Paris Fashion Week has started… I’m so in love with many French Designs and perfumes… One of my favorites is “Chanel No.5”.

It has such a classic and beautiful scent. Nobody can deny that this is one of the best selling perfumes in the world.

Chanel No.5 was introduced first time at Christmas in 1921. And it has been available for sales since mid 1922. Thanks to the legendary, Parisian couturier, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. A person behind the formula and invention was Earnest Beaux… He gathered and collected few pieces of scents and delicately mixed …it finally became “Chanel No.5”.

In 1953, Marilyn Monroe was asked what she wore at night… she simply replied “five drops of Chanel No.5”.

Feel so privileged to own one… simple, yet very classy…

Soaps from “Lush” are such great products that I have been using a lot lately. I have known for the brand, “Lush”, for quite a few years… but somehow I didn’t feel like getting into it before. Some of my friends have given me as gifts to try… and now I have to say that Lush Soaps are amazing! There are certain items that I would recommend you to try if you’re into natural & handmade beauty soaps… here they are…

My Top 5 soaps from Lush

(Left to Right) Sea Vegetable, Sexy Peel, Miranda, Rock Star, Honey IWTK

Sea Vegetable : It contains combination scents of lime, lavender and seaweed. The texture is quite interesting, because of it is made from seaweed, it will smooth your skin a bit while you are showering. I think this is a very unique product… I feel like both men and women will enjoy the scents because it is not too girly for men to use! I think it is one of best selling products from Lush.

Sexy Peel : It has combination scents of lemon and lime marmalade… you do feel a bit into exotic fragrance, citrus perfume… very fresh summer kind of soap. I enjoy this scent quite a lot.

Miranda Soap : There are fresh scent of kiwi, orange and  bergamot smell as a combination of ingredients. It is very soothing and relaxing when you use it in the shower…  I am still wondering why it is called “Miranda”… if you know, please leave me a comment below.

Rock Star : A bubble gum scented soap… it is described as a soap that makes you sing in the shower… so I guess the name of “Rock Star” derived that way… fun name, isn’t it?

Honey I Washed The Kids Soap : Caramel and honey scented soap. I have no idea why it added “I washed the Kids” after “Honey”… guess Lush wants to make it more interesting and easy to remember. I love the scent though… very yummy!

…I do enjoy being in the shower for this season… it’s so hot and humid where I live (Milan, Italy)… yes, shower is a must! Thanks goodness for great Lush soap… they are good quality, I totally recommend it 🙂

“Naked Eye” Palette by Too Faced is described as Soft and Sexy Eye Shadow Collection. This is one of the palettes that you can create all kinds of different looks… so versatile, good value for money in my opinions. The palette itself is very light weight, it is quite convenient for travelling if you want to bring with you somewhere. I love the Too Faced always comes out with neutral and wearable colors… the products are very pigmented and you don’t need to pile on too much for your lids. Another piece of quality primer that you might consider to pick up is Too Faced Shadow Insurance (Eye Primer), it’d be perfect to use with these eye shadows.
